  1. You lost me at “Or they choose to eat raw spinach instead of pizza” 🤣🤣🤣spinach over pizza yes you have two nutritional psychologists already

  2. I have a hard time getting my 2.5 and 5 year old to try one bite of a new food, any new food, let alone 3 bites.
    Any suggestions?

  3. Raised by vegetarian parents, I’m a big believer in veggies even though I have now included meat in my diet again. I love your belief that if kids see you eat veggies they will follow suit. I completely agree it’s kind of like reading in that way! In our attempt to bring more veg into our home I have learned to love new veg myself which is a surprise. I’m not a fan of hiding veg in dishes – although sometimes a good pureed soup is so nommy! – I would rather my little one try the veg both raw and cooked and get a real idea of what she enjoys. I continue to offer mushrooms and avacado even though the texture throws her every time (but – hey! – she gives them a fighting chance and what more can I ask for?). I guess, in the end, dinner is a social experience at our house and part of that is the joy of trying new things together.

      Yes! I love that you are a fellow vegetable-loving mom! I don’t love all veggies, but I enjoy a variety of them. My husband and I don’t like mushrooms, so I don’t offer that one! 🙂 Thank you for sharing your experiences and thoughts!
